  3. Hi
    I do not know exactly which type of connection you are using as an active
    connection, it might be that you have some 3rd party utility that runs the
    Wireless and displays an Icon, and it needs to be reconfigured. In the
    native Windows Network the icon is associated with the Wireless and or the
    Wire NIC connections.

  4. Hi
    It is Not a matter of missing Icon The tray does not cache icons per-se. If
    whatever connection/application that this Icon was related to, is not On,
    and Not configured to show the Icon, there will Not be an icon in the
    traybar.
